THE LAMENTING LADY
20   And on the graue where now they lye
a monument still stands To shew this wondrous hap of mine
vnto all Christian lands, That such as be of high degree
may beare a meeker minde, Least they despising of the poore
the like misfortune finde.
21   The Lord we see his blessings sends
to many women poore As well as to the noble sort,
that haue aboundant store: Therefore let none desire to haue
the ioyes of worldly things Except it be his sacred will
that is the King of Kings.
Printed at London for Henry Gosson,
and are to be sold at his shop on
London Bridge.
